British synth-pop pioneers Years & Years, are on their way to Thailand with their global brand of pop-dance that includes the hits “King”, “Desire”, “Shine”, and “Eyes Shut” and more. The trio, who are on their “Palo Santa” tour will touch down on March 1 at GMM Live House, 8th floor, CentralWorld.



Brought to Thailand by Live Nation BEC-Tero, the three members of Years & Years – vocalist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy, and keyboardist and synthesizer player EmreT?rkmen – hail from London, and came together as a band in 2010 before gaining massive mainstream global success with the hit “King” in 2015, which shot to the top of the UK charts and made the top 10 on charts around the world. The follow up “Shine” reached the second rank in the UK, preceding their first full album “Communion”, which was met with widespread critical acclaim and debuted at the top of the charts.

This year, the band released its second album “Palo Santo”, a concept album that tells the story of a parallel universe inside Olly’s imagination where traditional notions of sexuality and gender no longer exist. It has been praised for its “deep emotional resonance”. The album’s ideas are told through the music, the accompanying videos and a short film. 

For this tour, Years & Years have set their sights on taking the audience into the Palo Santo universe, expressing their creativity through their music and spectacular performance, presenting a new kind of excitement in their own distinctive style.
